Carthage College is overall a perfect fit for me. It is not too far from my home in Kenosha, but far enough away from home. Even though I am only 7 minutes away from campus it feels like I am out of state because there is so much to do here. The people on campus are close and all of the students know almost everyone which is a positive factor. The classes and professors are interesting and you always feel like you have learned something new every time you walk outside the class. Carthage is the best school choice for me and to make my dreams of staying possible, I would need some financial help.

carthage is a nice place to be. it isn't a wonderland, ya know? being so small it is not super easy to find a good place to be alone, but when somebody needs it, he can find it. the nature is wonderful, the people are quite nice, in general, but once you "find your niche" as they say, it's bomb. i'd say everybody at least once complained about the system, the excessive cost, the social life, etc... i argue that if one is not satisfied, one should continue the search. i dropped because of stress and depression, not to mention that by the end of four years i'd be about 50k in debt (i'd say this contributed to the anxiety). the food is maybe a bit too much for its real value. also, dorms are not great condition, but there are little or no STD, roach, rats, etc. to fear. the housing really is fine, but you have to make it your home.. i mean, come on. at carthage i had great experiences, and i still visit friends. had some awful experiences, but reflecting on my whole life, i'd say it was a nice time to have. i would dare say some are worse, but to be honest, i feel as though the experience there could sum up experience in general. at times, the cold was oppresssive, at times, the sun wouldn't allow you to be sad, friends come, friends go, some things are too expensive, some are worth, something is missing, and just like there is a place to begin, there is a place to leave- i left a year ago and still feel nostalgia - i'm here, aren't i?? i learned a lot at carthage but very little was ever from classes. don't get me wrong, i love learning and i like the professors, but what was most important to me was making it so the time was worth it; knowing that i could only enjoy the time if i tried to make it enjoyable. so, thanks, carthage, for teaching me how to make myself happy.
